This FOA solicits Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/organizations proposing exceptionally innovative research on novel hypotheses or difficult problems, solutions to which would have an extremely high impact on biomedical or biobehavioral research that is germane to the mission of one or more of the participating NIH Institutes. This FOA is for support of new projects, not continuation of projects that have already been initiated. It does not support pilot projects, i.e., projects of limited scope that are designed primarily to generate data that will enable the PI to seek other funding opportunities.

31-3 Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grants (T32) (NIH)
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will award Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grants (T32) to eligible institutions as the primary means of supporting predoctoral and postdoctoral research training to help ensure that a diverse and highly trained workforce is available to assume leadership roles related to the Nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research agenda. The primary objective of the T32 program is to prepare qualified individuals for careers that have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the Nation. This program supports predoctoral, postdoctoral and short term research training programs at domestic institutions of higher education with the T32 funding mechanism. Note that programs solely for short-term research training should not apply to this announcement, but rather the separate (T35) NRSA Short-Term Institutional program exclusively reserved for short-term programs (see PA-08-227).

At the time this preliminary request is being issued, the DEPSCoR FY 2009 program announcement has not been released by the DoD. This preliminary request is based on the DoD FY 2008 program and unofficial, preliminary information that has been provided by DoD. It may be necessary to modify the Kansas program if there are substantial changes in the DEPSCoR FY 2009 program when it is released. As in the past two years, the selection of full proposals will be based on pre-proposals and only those researchers whose pre-proposals are selected will need to prepare full proposals. The state proposal is expected to consist of three to five individually fundable proposals which comply with the Defense Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research Announcement (DoD RFP).
The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation was established in 1925 by United States Senator Simon Guggenheim and his wife as a memorial to a son who died April 26, 1922. The Foundation offers Fellowships to further the development of scholars and artists by assisting them to engage in research in any field of knowledge and creation in any of the arts, under the freest possible conditions and irrespective of race, color, or creed. The Fellowships are awarded to men and women who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. (GA 6/08)
The Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad Program supports overseas projects in training, research, and curriculum development in modern foreign languages and area studies for groups of teachers, students, and faculty engaged in a common endeavor. Projects are short-term and include seminars, curriculum development, or group research or study. For 2009 a group project must focus on one or more of the following geographic regions of the world: Africa, East Asia, South Asic, Southeast Asia and the Pacific, the Western Hemisphere (Central and South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean), East Central Europe and Eurasia, and the Near East. A competitive priority is for projects that focus on any of the 78 languages deemed critical on the U.S. Department of Education's list of Less Commonly taught Languages. CFDA 84.021A (FR 8/15/08)
The purposes of this program are to: 1) help address State-identified needs for highly qualified personnel--in special education, related services, early intervention, and regular education--to work with infants, toddlers, and children with disabilities; and 2) ensure that those personnel have the necessary skills and knowledge, derived from practices that have been determined through scientifically based research and experience, to be successful in serving those children. Priorities are: Preparation of Leadership Personnel; Combined Personnel Preparation; and Special Education Preservice Program Improvement Grants. 84.325D; 84.325K; 84.325T (FR 7/21/08)
The Mineral Resources Program (MRP) of the U.S. Geological Survey is offering a grant and/or cooperative agreement opportunity to universities and others that have the ability to conduct research in topics related to non-fuel mineral resources. The proposed work must be research. Data collection and compilation are important early steps in a research project but do not, alone, constitute research. The proposed research must address one of the long-term goals of the MRP: 1) Ensure availability of up-to-date quantitative assessments of potential of undiscovered mineral deposits; 2) Ensure availability of up-to-date geoenvironmental assessments of priority Federal lands; 3) Ensure availability of reliable geologic, geochemical, geophysical, and mineral locality data for the U.S.; 4) Ensure availability of long-term data sets describing mineral production and consumption. 09HQPA0002 (GG 8/18/09)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is being issued by the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This FOA solicits Exploratory/Developmental (R21) applications from institutions/organizations that propose to apply one or more specific system science methodologies to public health and health care systems problems and contribute knowledge that will enhance effective decision making around the development of and prioritization of policies, interventions, and programs to improve population health, especially where resources are limited and only a limited number of programs/policies/interventions can be implemented. Applicants are encouraged to submit projects that tackle policy resistant health problems (i.e., ones in which the effects of planned interventions, programs or policies tend to be delayed, diluted or defeated by responses of the system to the intervention itself) using a systems science methodology.

The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage research that will improve the quality and scientific power of data collected in the behavioral and social sciences, relevant to the missions of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers. The participating NIH Institutes and Centers invite qualified researchers to submit research grant applications aimed at improving and developing methodology and measurement in the behavioral and social sciences through innovations in research design, data collection techniques, measurement, and data analysis techniques. Research that addresses methodology and measurement issues in diverse populations, issues in studying sensitive behaviors, issues of ethics in research, issues related to confidential data and the protection of research subjects, and issues in developing interdisciplinary, multimethod, and multilevel approaches to behavioral and social science research is particularly encouraged, as are approaches that integrate behavioral and social science research with biological, physical, or computational science research or engineering. This FOA will utilize the NIH Research Project Grant (R01) mechanism and runs in parallel with PAR-08-213 and PAR-08-214, which solicit applications under the Exploratory/Developmental (R21) and Small Research Grant (R03) award mechanisms, respectively.
